Note: Written by Bruce in 1971. Performed with The Bruce Springsteen Band in late 1971 and early 1972. A wild, full band live performance at The Backdoor Club in Richmond in February 1972 is circulating. This seems to be the earliest of his compositions to incorporate substantial scattershot imagery. V1 recorded at CBS Studios on May 3, 1972. V2 recorded at Pocketful Of Tunes Studios in May-June, 1972. V3 is a solo acoustic number left off the Greetings album, recorded June 1972 at 914 Sound Studios. A full-band take may well have been recorded as well, but there are no mentions of the song (in either arrangement) in the studio logs.
